Hairball control

Once again... A failure. I am done trying to find something my kids will eat. I've tried sneaking it in their wet food and my girl eats around it even tho it is mixed in. So after 11 yrs of trying I'm just going to have to put up with hairballs.

My kitty loves this stuff!

This is prescribed by my vet for daily use to prevent hairballs and prevent constipation. My kitty loves it and will lick it off my fingers.

This stuff is magic. It was hard to see my senior long hair boy suffer with such bad hairballs until I tried this. He likes it on his wet food.

Picky Cat Tolerates

My cat is a VERY picky eater, he hates Churu or anything meat flavored thats not his normal mealtime foods. His favorite treat is pureed pumpkin so this maple flavor was mild enough that he didnt outright refuse it. Now he runs away bc he hates me putting it on his paws, but every once in a while he will eat it right off of my finger, which means a normal cat would probably enjoy it.

Hairball treatment

My cat refused to even try this product, putting it on her nose as the directions recommended wasn't going to work either. She's to smart and runs away.

Fabulous Fixit

My cat suffers from chronic mowing. Nothing done will fix it. She was taken from shelter for a month as a kitten and returned abused. It's difficult to listen to her mow and not be able to address the issue without drugging her with severe anti-anxiety meds that make her sleep ALL DAY. My new vet suggested I put this in a feeder syringe and administer every day. If I don't, she gets bowel obstructions and we have to go to the vet to enema her. This has been a life changer. She doesn't mind when I put a pea sized drop on her tongue and continue to do so until it's all gone from the syringe. I had tried this years ago putting on her paw and she literally wiped ME with her paw! I tried by her mouth and she wiped her mouth on the blanket until it was all off. She had no interest in eating it! Using feeding syringe, within 10 hours, she passes a huge dump. I wish I was given this advice 7 years ago. We've spent a lot of time and money at the vet for obstructions when this makes it all move along very swiftly. I also follow the Vet advice to add in a 1/4 tsp of miralax in wet food. Laxaone is super. Give it a try if things are complicated and you've tried everything else. I tried the tuna flavor with her, she doesn't like. Original maple syrup to start.

Best hairball prevention

This has always been my go to for furball prevention. I have a maine coone with long hair and he loves the flavor and takes it outta my hand. No furballs and discomfort for him!

Good product

My cat is having a problem with hairballs so the vet recommended trying Laxatone. It seems to be helping. She also has a problem with her anal glands. This product may be assisting in softening the buildup in the glands which hopefully will eliminate the need for surgery. I just put a dab on my finger and wipe it on her tongue. She tolerates it.

This Works!!

PeeWee hates it, but then she hates anything you try to give her. It works for her though and keeps her stools moving. Plus thankfully, it's less than getting it from the vet.
